Based out of Fellsmere, Florida, our Happy Healthy Shrimp are raised at the most scientifically advanced aquaculture facility ever created. We are a proud member of the Indian River community, where environmental awareness and agricultural sustainability play a key role in everyday living. In our primary marketplace of South Florida, we are delighted to offer locally grown shrimp where the best quality seafood is in high demand.

We invite you to meet some of the key members of our team and learn more about the experience and commitment to quality that guides Florida Organic Aquaculture.

Clifford Morris is the President and Founder of Happy Healthy Shrimp, and the driving force behind our motto "If they aren't good enough for our family, they aren't good enough for yours." As a lifelong entrepreneur, Clifford has traveled the world and seen for himself the devastating effects of short-term, environmentally harmful agriculture and aquaculture practices. A native of South Africa, Clifford has long been interested in developing sustainable alternatives that will positively benefit our global health and future generations for years to come. 

After becoming aware of the growing need for more long-term, sustainable practices, Clifford visited numerous aquaculture facilities to meet top researchers and professionals. Through these exciting partnerships and Clifford's determination, Florida Organic Aquaculture developed into the environmentally beneficial, sustainable, family-oriented establishment we are today.
